Trap music is a music genre that originated in the early 2000s from Southern hip hop in the Southern United States. It is typified by its aggressive lyrical content and sound, which incorporates 808 sub-bass kick drums, double-time, triple-time and other faster time division hi-hats, pitched-down vocals,[3] layered synthesizers, and “cinematic” strings.

In 2012, a new movement of electronic music producers and DJs emerged who began incorporating elements of trap music into their works.This helped expand its popularity among electronic music fans. A number of stylistic offshoots of trap developed, which in the latter half of 2012 gained a rise in viral popularity and made a noticeable impact on dance music.
